Platinum 3776 Century Shungyo Fountain Pen
Platinum 3776 Century Shungyo Fountain Pen is a newly released first edition of the Fuji Shunkei (Fuji seanonal view) series features a line up of new fountain pens inspired by the miraculous shots taken by the so-called “the photographer who is invited by Mount Fuji” as well as the beautiful Japanese words related to the four seasons surrounding Mount Fuji. As the sky takes on the reddish hue during dawn, the silhouettes of the mountain changes from moment to moment.
The Platinum 3776 Century Shungyo Fountain Pen is created based on the concept focused on expressing the beautiful colours of such a moment on the barrel of the pen, which is applied with rhodium finish and a shining ring while a part that resembles Mount Fuji is placed at the top of cap. Platinum hopes the users can enjoy the pen for a long time. More designs will be added to the series in future, so please look forward to seeing more. Nib sizes are available in F and SF.
